I miss visiting Rocky Mountain National Park nearly every week when I was working part-time in Boulder, Colorado. For the last several weeks I have been spending time a lot of time going through my image catalogs looking for bird images that I can add to My eBird checklists. I am about half way through 14 years of images. So far I found images of 375 species of birds in 46 countries, territories, and dependencies. One of the great things about My eBird is it helps me identify bird images by comparison with images in their collection, and by what birds would be common (or rare) for the locations where I took the images.

There was a partial Lunar Eclipse while I was working at the Merck/Sirna site in Boulder. The sky was clear and I spent much of the night observing the eclipse from the Sirna parking lot. At one point I must have stood in front of the camera for a selfie.
Summer Morning Reflections at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. Image taken with a Nikon D2xs and 14 mm f/2.8 lens (ISO 140, 14 mm, f/11, 1/60 sec). Three versions — as originally processed, reprocessed three-years ago (Capture One Pro, Photoshop CC, Focus Magic, and NIK Color Efex and NIK Define), and reprocessed today. Let me know which you like better (or why I save all images — to learn from my mistakes and to used newer image processing tools).
